In ur... moreIn SE Cedar, the main issue is sound and call quality, in a phone targeted at the masses the ringtone should be loud,the call quality should be loud and clear to be audible in busy areas like road,traffic etc, the speaker phone should be loud when you listen to mp3 songs or when you turn on the radio. All mobile manufacturers maintain the above as standard. And samsung is doing a good job with regard to entry level phones with lesser price band. We are all sony ericsson fans. The company should also remember that and cater to the needs of the customers. Else people like samsung who were nowhere are now no 2 in the market in terms of sales volumes.

I know it would not be upgrade for K 750i[Rather I would say no other fone i... moreyeah there is no fone in the world to replace k750 !
the earphones bundled with the cedar are not that good. If you have a 3rd party 3.5mm headphones of great quality , they will work very nicely !
the music quality on earphones is good with mega bass settings.
I know it would not be upgrade for K 750i[Rather I would say no other fone in the world can replace this legendary fone.....]
BTW how is the Music Quality thru Headphones??
Is it loud throught the earspeaker when taking a call?if it louder than w910 earspeaker then its good because,when taking a call with w910 the earspeaker sound is very very low i can't even hear a caller when walking in street
AXIS, 16 Nov 2010I purchased this phone for Rs 5300+ tax in Bangalore. Its a basic bar phone. The call quality ... moreR u kiddin' ?
First of all... it's really hilarious that u call Rs. 5400 a high price.
In ur full comment u stated that it's loudspeaker sound is low(well... I agree on this one) but after that u concluded it by saying that sound quality is low (which is not true).
Why r u mixing sound quality & sound loudness?
Sound loudness is only low in loudspeaker( the only fault ) otherwise this phone is nice & u can't just judge a phone on it's loudness.
And this loudness problem is not a permanent one.
SE naite had this problem when launched but after about 2 months a firmware update solved that problem , se zylo which also had low loudspeaker volume has been updated few days ago which has solved the problem. So, most possibly cedar would also have a software update to solve it.
The sound system is low n pathetic. if we keep full volume some beep sound is coming and distorted.there is no manual equalier setting . is there any possiblity to get d manual setting after d software update anyone reply

I purchased this phone for Rs 5300+ tax in Bangalore. Its a basic bar phone. The call quality is low, in traffic its not clear. The speaker volume for ringtones is low. Playing songs on the speaker phone is low. The phone looks good in your hands, the keypad is kind of rubber and feels good for sms. The phone overall sound quality is very poor for this high price. For a basic phone targeted at the masses, ringtone volume, call quality, mp3 songs on speaker phone should be loud and clear, unfortunately this phone lacks the above features. The headset is 3.5mm good quality. Playing videos on the phone with speaker is useless, as the volume is very low. Sony ericsson you let us down once again, and have lost your position in the top 5 of world sales of mobile phones and if you do not improve, you might as well close than bring grief to your fans.
